“an awesome theatre with great performers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I went to the Chopin series last year and it was the best concert experience I had ever had. The pianist was awesome and even played my favourite polonaise as the end. The theatre is very cozy and there is a theatre bar for drinks before and after and during the intermission. It is a great place, and in a great location in the center of Guadalajara. I came back this year to go to the new season of classics but ALL the tickets were sold out for the whole month. Book early!

“great but closed!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Nothing wrong with the theater but... went there 3 days in a row (noon to 2 PM) and couldn't acces because of rehearsals. I guess Christmass time isn't the best for that. Anyway, it's in the area you should and will visit.

“Nice facade”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I couldn't visit the interior given some kind of rehersal going on inside, so I just enjoyed the outside.

“Marvelous!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Every winter my wife and I drive from Ajijic to downtown Guadalajara on Sundays to hear the Jalisco Philharmonic Orchestra perform at the beautiful Teatro Degollado.The Sunday matinees at 12:30 p.m. cost from $8 to $16.... a bargain compared to US and Canada. The teatro is simply stunning and always full - mostly local citizens. Music and sound quality is as good as I have heard in famous European theaters. We usually have brunch at the little restaurant at the front of the teatro.
